On whether the meeting will produce a joint statement or any kind of agreement, Qin said it depends on the willingness of all parties concerned and the progress of the talks.
Qin urged all parties concerned to make joint efforts to promote the six-party talks process for new achievements.
"All the six parties are making active efforts to promote the process toward the goal of denuclearization and peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and the northeast Asia at large, " Qin noted.
On when the six parties will hold a foreign ministers' meeting, Qin said it still needs further contacts and consultation, adding China, as one of the six parties and host of the six-party talks, adopts a positive and open attitude to the holding of such a meeting and will continue to keep contacts and consultation with the other five parties.
The six-party talks, involving China, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), the United States, the Republic of Korea (ROK), Japan and Russia, have focused on the denuclearization of the Korean peninsular. So far, six rounds of talks have been held in Beijing since 2003.
